Virginie Maltais presents her series “Les Murs”, twelve triptychs inspired by photos she took of the brick walls of the Plateau Mont-Royal neighbourhood and trees in Parc La Fontaine. The series is about personal and social limits, how to break the walls to make our place, how to see beyond the walls and let our imagination create a field of possibilities. Méli Hoffmann presents her “I’m Not Perfect” series, collage portraits of warrior women. Agnès Robin creates realistic portraits of women, occasionally including collage techniques and thinking.
